Not the best cut from their latest CD, Super Taranta. But Eugene Hutz and Gogol Bordello put together a pretty good global road song here. I like the clips of gypsy musicians jamming and kids dancing from the forthcoming documentary, The Pied Piper of Hutzovina, due out in September. (View trailer.)
So last Saturday, I tune in LiveEarth just in time to catch Madonna’s last song, the climax of at the London venue. Turns out, minutes before she had Hutz and another bandmate onstage to sing their traditional gypsy song, Lela Pala Tute. Broadcasting to hundreds of millions of people worldwide. And I missed it. Oh well. The Madonna big production number at LiveEarth wasn’t nearly as lovely as this version with Hutz singing in the backseat of a car.
